This year there will be only 458 mil- bushels of Winter wheat to supply market's needs. That will inevitably rsult in a better price, probably a pro- fitable price, for those who have it to sell. Nearly 14 percent of the lands which have been devoted to wheat growing were not sown for this year's Drought in the Great Plains area largely responsible for this fact, how- aver, rather than intelligent foresight on the part of wheat farmers. The impbrtance of anything which will tend to ,give any considerable part of the nation's farmers a better price and a larger profit extends to every- body. Not every farmer is a wheat by any means. But wheat is one the five great agcultural staples others---corn, cotton, tobacco, potatoes not only of the farmer but of the whole' THE MT. PULASKI TIMES. MT.

It strikes m that what we need these days is the habit of taking a little long- er look, envisaging, a few more tomor- rows.

The suggestion is made by the dean of Duke University Law School that legislators might well consider a reviv- al of the old English statutes of out- lawry, as a means of checking the ac- tivities of racketeers and garrgst0vs. Under those old laws, any person known to be an habitual violator of the , whether, convicted under the rules of evidence or not, could be declar- ed an outlaw--that it, without the pro- tection of the law. It became the duty of every citizen, then, to kill such an outlaw on sight. His property was for- feited and his family prohibited from carrying on his name. That was an effective means of deal- ing out summary justice. It has been used in the United States more than once in the past century and a half. The suggastion will make the tender-heart- ed shudder, but so did the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby. We think the time is here for the tightening up of the criminal laws. As long as crooks can corrupt leslativei bodies and courts, they will continue to fish and imperil the lives and pro- of honest men. We think the myers are paying too much now for the board and lodging of prisoners in jails. We think it might be a good idea to consider the more effective and ec(- n:.tlO nomical "- f ,-dding the o  f known criminals by declaring them out- laws. :0:-- "004"ay of Life C ABOUT SCHOOL CHILDREN Parants are very rightly anxious a- bout their youngsters going to school, lest they should pick up infection pecu- liar to child-life, such as measles, mumps, chicken-pox, or the more seri- ous throat infections, scarlet fever, dip- theria, and the like.
